Arrested for DUI and speeding
Hi my bother-in-law who's from Mexico City and was staying here for a couple weeks work related , got arrested over the weekend in Fayette County, WV for a DUI and speeding at 100mph , he was suppose to flight back to Mexico on Thursday. He has a Mexico drivers license and has never lived here before therefor he is not familiar with the driving laws.. He was bail out by his boss and was told can't leave the county until his court date, but his court might take up to a month. Can he ask for some type of permission and come back for his court date? what are the chances that he might get his case dismiss or clear since he is not from here or lives here's at all. Should he get a lawyer? What are his best options ?He's being charge with a felony and a misdemeanor . He's staying at hotel !

What does it mean to be summoned to court for the status of DUI deferral program?
I was convicted of my first DUI two years ago in which I blew the minimum limit .097. I attended the 6 week drug and alcohol class a year ago. I did not have the interlock system installed in my car. Is this the reason for which I am being summoned? Because I was under the impression that I did not have to have the interlock given the circumstances of the situation.
Minimum limit in all 50 states is .08

Can the charges be refiled if the case was dismissed for a misdemeanor DUI?
I was charged with a DUI on May 2014. Blood test came back .05 and the officer made a lot of mistakes in the report. The prosecutor filed a motion to dismiss and it was signed by the judge on March 2015. I received a phone call from a Sgt which told me that I was summoned and they would refile the charges. He said that I didn't follow the plea deal. A plea was never made or agreed, in fact I was very adamant about not making a deal.
Depends if it was dismissed without prejudice or not. Impossible to tell over the internet. If you would have taken...
